10 arrested in Villatoro murder

First the good news: The Honduran police and prosecutors are moving against 10 suspects in the murder case of journalist Alfredo Villatoro.

Now the bad news: The Honduran police are not known for their investigative skills. I have to be concerned that poor procedures could get the cases tossed. A number of others in the country share this concern.

Here is hoping that this case — unlike just about all the other cases involving the killing of journalists, lawyers and reformers — will go all the way to trial, prosecution and successful conviction and incarceration.
